LTFT Conference/Research LTFT Conference on the 1 st March, well attended by Trainees and positively received Presentations from BMA, Trainee Rep and LTFT Advisor Research project – mapping destination of LTFTs over the past ten years. Data collection, focus groups and an online survey Results of online survey – 95% of trainees remained in Wales after completing training
UK Round-up Collins Report GMC surveys UKFPO update
Collins - careers-related issue (1) All of the appropriate organisations must work together to define good practice for the provision of careers information and advice. Such information must be easily accessible, simple to understand and contain transparent data on each specialty, including competition ratios and a potential applicants likelihood of success
Collins - careers-related issue (2) Deaneries/Foundation Schools should make a greater effort to meet one of the important purposes of the Programme – to ensure that trainees experience many different specialties – by maximising and simplifying access to Tasters and by implementing organised swap shops for trainees to exchange rotations by 2013. Foundation Schools should disclose through their local Deanery website the degree of flexibility allowed by their programme in a standardised format.
GMC Trainee Survey 2010 Career management skills and planning: 55% foundation trainees said they had been able to develop their career management skills and career plans and that the opportunity was useful Information to assist career planning: 40% (48% F2 and 34% F1) knew where to look to get sufficient information 25% said they had received information but that there was not enough high quality information in place
UKFPO Annual Report Relatively low numbers undertaking GP placements in F1 or F2 in some foundation schools (range 30-95%) compared to the 50% requirement for GPs in specialty There are also issues around opportunities to experience hard-to- recruit specialties in foundation
Tasters for Foundation doctors Standardised guidance for effective tasters on the UKFPO website and also in the Foundation Programme Reference Guide. Rough Guide to the Foundation Programme (2010 edition) contained comprehensive guidance on tasters. Do you provide tasters in your specialty / location?
UK Careers Issues Work ongoing to agree presentation of 2011 competition ratios UK MCWG future ? UKFPO Careers workstream to March 2011 NEAF and MCAN meetings ongoing MSC developing information for school leavers contemplating a medical career Future setting of deaneries in England?
Workforce – many sources NLIAH report – overview and speciality reports CFWI report – reducing numbers in some specialities Collins report on Foundation programme – Autumn 2010 BMA Cohort Study – 4 th report UKFPO warns of shortfall of F1 posts for 2011 – September 2010 Junior doctors desert the NHS – Times, Sept 2010
Theories of career decision making Person-Environment Fit Theories e.g. work of Holland Developmental Career Theory e.g. Super Psychodynamic Theories Structural Theories e.g. Roberts Laws Community Interaction Theory Narrative approach to careers e.g. Cochran
Counselling theories Person Centered Approaches (Derived from the work of Carl Rogers) –congruence, unconditional positive regard and empathic understanding Person-centered career counselling is a relationship between a counsellor and a client, arising from the clients concerns, which creates a psychological climate in which the client can evolve a personal identity, decide the vocational goal that is fulfilment of that identity, determine a planned route to that goal, and implement that plan. The person-centered career counselor relates with genuineness, unconditional positive regard and empathy; the locus of control for decisions remains with the client out of the counselors trust in the self-actualizing tendency of the individual. The focus in person-centered career counselling is that of attitudes and beliefs that foster the natural actualizing process rather than on techniques and goals. (Bozarth J.D and Fisher, Rl (1990). Person-centered career counseling. In W.B. Walsh and S.H. Ospiow (Eds). Handbook of Vocational Psychology. Mahway, NJ: Erlbaum
Emerging Career Theories Narrative Theories emphasise the process of re- interpreting the past in order to develop and maintain a coherent story, rather than just the existence of memory of a consistent past emphasises emplotment - the process of viewing the self as the main character in a meaningful and productive narrative
Emerging Careers Theories Career Learning and Storyboarding SeSiFU – sensing, sifting, focusing and understanding storyboarding aimed at enabling clients to find out Whats going on? and to work out What can I do about it?. It focuses on reflecting on a turning point in a persons life and gives clients the opportunity to explore their own capacity for flexibility
Emerging Career Theories Happenstance (chance) Counsellors need to teach clients to engage in exploratory activities to increase the probability that the clients will discover unexpected career opportunities. Unplanned events can become opportunities for learning. The ultimate goal of career counselling is creating satisfying lives, not just making a decision Practitioners should get clients to engage in exploratory action Open-mindedness should be celebrated, not discouraged Benefits should be maximised from unplanned events
Emerging Career Theories Systems theory framework (STF) social contextual systems – the principal social influences within which individuals interact and/or receive input from e.g. family, community, media, education etc. environmental/contextual systems – things like geographical location, political decisions, historical trends, labour market etc. Chaos theory draws attention to the complexity, changeability and connectedness of the components of career development – complexity, change, chance Cultural capital increased focus in widening participation into medicine and medical school

Core skills Ali and Graham (1996) provide a clear account of the essential skills that are used in career counselling (and in fact, in any counselling relationship). According to this model, certain skills are more basic than others – although all levels of skills are essential for an effective counselling relationship.

More about the Skills Pyramid Interpretative skills – challenging, immediacy, self-disclosure and providing information Understanding skills – restating, paraphrasing, summarising and asking open questions Active listening skills - this term means listening to: the content of what is being said, how it is said, the possible meaning behind the words, the feelings expressed and the nature of any silences. It is used through the whole session
